Analysis: Kamala Harris is taking over traditionally presidential foreign policy duties

In a troubling sign that Kamala Harris is taking an outsized role in the Biden presidency, it appears that she’s been meeting one on one with major U.S. allies. In a meaningful sense, she’s taking over for Joe Biden, in Biden’s supposed area of expertise. (foreign policy)

Apparently, Joe Biden isn’t running a lot of things, at least when it comes to foreign policy. Is this a surprise?

The Washington Examiner reports:

Harris’s early one-on-one with Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron of France, a traditional and significant ally, suggests that she’ll play an important role, said Joel Goldstein, author of The White House Vice Presidency: The Path to Significance, Mondale to Biden. “The relationship with France goes back to the Revolutionary War. And it’s a country that is obviously a key member of NATO and a key European ally.”

“They are not having her start off with a relatively insignificant country.”

No kidding. Biden can’t even handle softballs from a sycophant press, so it’s probably wise to keep him out of the meetings with Vladimir Putin or Xi Jinping. But what does that say about the Biden administration?

We’re being told that it’s “moderate” because Biden is an unthreatening buffoon who’s been in Washington for 47 years. But conservatives are pointing out that Biden isn’t even in command of his full faculties, much less his administration.

Kamala Harris may end up being the real power behind this administration. And that’s something we all should be concerned about.
